Great place to stay. Spent one night and it felt like family as soon as we registered. Owners are incredibly welcoming and hospitable. They'll even make your waffle at breakfast for you. Sit outside in the garden area and enjoy the breakfast and the time while soothing and relaxing music seranades you. The room is updated, very clean and comfortable....

We had a very good experience from beginning to end. It is not a fancy place, but a very relaxing and comfortable small hotel. Our room was large with the ocean view right across the street. I thought it would be noisy being near the road and the train tracks, but we were not woken up by either. (I had...

The hotel is across the ocean, take a room with a balcony facing the ocean it's beautiful. The room is spacious, it has a microwave and a fridge but it's a little outdated. They have a simple breakfast included too. The hotel served our purpose for 3 days instead of staying in the outrageous ritz.

We booked this hotel knowing it was right on the PCH because of the proximity to the water. The beach is a five minute walk to get up and over a crossing. The beach is nice but there are a ton of RVs in the lot across from the hotel and quite a few kids on the beach likely due...

Nice clean room. Hotel is well kept. Personnel are pleasant. It is across a busy street from a nice beach. About a mile or two into Dana Point. Breakfast is simple but fine. Would recommend to families and business travelers.

Warmly greeted and felt welcomed to this very convenient property just south of Dana Point across from the ocean. Frenando was very friendly and excellent host at this property. There is Free underground property the a seating area on the second level to relax and view the ocean. A gem of hotel tucked off the California 1 Hwy.

Stayed at this little gem for a wedding and was happy with the front desk employees, cleansliness and location. This hotel is on PCH but we couldn't hear anything from our hotel room. This hotel is also pet friendly so be sure you're fine with dogs. There's a short walk across the street & down the street to a nice...

Room looked nice enough, staff was pleasant. There were ants all over the bathroom and the AC barely worked. Wifi was useless and there wasn't enough parking since they allowed people to park across two spots. Not awful, but would recommend it

The staff is very kind and accommodating, even checking in at a late hour. Their location is great, and easily accessible to the ocean. If you can't make it to the beach, I recommend getting an ocean view room- it's worth the extra money if you can't get outside. The room sizes and amenities (sink and mini fridge) in it...
